The acorn, as the saying goes, does not fall far from the tree. Daughters of two of riot-torn Minnesota’s highest profile office holders have been on Twitter offering encouragement and support to the forces rampaging there.
Yaacov Apelbaum did screen grabs of tweets from Hope Walz, daughter of Democrat Governor Tim Walz, whose fecklessness allowed rioters to dominate law enforcement forces for days before finally calling up what appears to be adequate National Guard support.
